A memorial service for Roseville police officer Bobby Seich, who died Tuesday of brain cancer, will be held Monday.

The Roseville Police Department announced that the service, which is open to the public, will begin at 10 a.m. at Adventure Christian Church, 6401 Stanford Ranch Road, Roseville.

Siech, 34, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2008 at age 25 and underwent successful surgery to remove the tumor. But a second tumor was found in 2015.

After another procedure, Seich went through chemotherapy to treat the remaining cancer. The tumor continued to spread, making it inoperable.

When Seich lost a portion of his speech and was unable to work as a police officer, the department made him a detective so he could follow up and close cases. He stopped working for the department in March.

Seich had been with the Roseville Police Department for nearly three years. He previously was a dispatcher for two years and a police officer for 10 years with the Kissimmee Police Department in Florida.

Seich is survived by his wife, Amber, and their 3-year-old son.
